Tokyo is tops. Like the people and despite being low diversity feels very different from the others.

I like Singapore more than the five ranked. Clmate is not good but love everything else.
Isn't London one of the most, if not the most 'diverse' cities on the planet though?

Really nowadays it's just London

A few years back you could have made the case that it could be seen to be on an even pegging with NY, but comrade de Blasio has really ruined the optics of the city. Paris is renovating in places but still filthy. Hong Kong is nice and vibrant but not on the same level as any of the others. London is the only place that tangibly looks better and better over time. Once it gets rid of its incompetent mayor and gets over this Brexit impasse its potential would be amazing.

I think he means "more white people". Not that everyone takes it to be a bad thing

I still don't get it? London has people from every spectrum? Do you mean he thinks it is too diverse?

I wish the OP would come back and update us. Covid turned the whole world upside down.

HK has the lowest vaccination rate among the 5 cities. London has the highest vaccination.
Low level of education of most people, strict control on incoming passengers, very few covid cases and distrust of authority and experts are the reasons to be blamed for the low rate in HK.
